Jared Fogle, the disgraced former spokesman for Subway, had a bit of a weight gain since he’s been in prison, a report stated.

Fogle, 38, achieved fame for appearing in the chain’s commercials, saying he lost a significant amount of weight by eating Subway sandwiches.

In 2015, he was sentenced to 15 years and eight months in a federal prison for engaging in sexual acts with minors and possession of child pornography. He pleaded guilty on August 9 of last year.

An “insider” told In Touch Weekly, a celebrity gossip magazine: “He’s really started packing on the pounds again, probably from depression.”

The person estimates that he gained about 30 pounds.

“Jared’s breakfast is usually Frosted Flakes with fruit or oatmeal with cake. He loves ‘cake day’ in the dining hall twice a week and he buys Honey Buns by the box, as well as other pastries, in the commissary on his weekly shopping day,” the insider continued. “He’s been known to eat an entire box of eight at one sitting!”

Due to the notoriety of the case, “Jared is regularly taunted by those who have it out for him,” the prison insider added.
